Adult is discussing the expectations of an assignment, encouraging the kids to follow the directions and do their best. Kids are not really putting out their best work. Discussion ensues about the next year's expectations.
Adult: "Mr. Smith will EAT YOU ALIVE next year if you try to pull this with HIM!"
The group of kids is completely silent while they weigh their options.
A voice from the back of the room pipes up,
"I didn't know Mr. Smith was a CANNIBAL!"
